(Ivanhoe Newswire) – It's summer time and your teenager has put what you think may be a permanent dent in your couch. Here are some tips for teens who want to make their own green this summer.
It's June and your teen has been on that same spot on the couch since the last day of school. It’s probably too late for them to get a summer job, right? Wrong! The internet can be a great tool to helping your teen find that summer job. Simply open a search engine and type in your city and state and teen employment.
There are also websites dedicated to hiring teens, such as www.teens4hire.org and www.summerjobs.com. If they’re applying online they should create a resume. Include your name, but for safety reasons do not put your address or phone number. Instead create an e-mail address for employers to contact you.
What about internships? Most don't pay, but they do offer a chance for teens to get some experience in the career field they like. Teens who are interested should to talk to their guidance counselor about opportunities or at the very least volunteer for the summer. It looks good on the resume and who knows, maybe they’ll learn something.
